6. Storage and File System Management

Storage can be made available to virtual machines in a number of different ways. This chapter covers some possible configurations.

The most straightforward method is to export a physical block device (a hard drive or partition) from dom0 directly to the guest domain as a virtual block device (VBD).

Storage may also be exported from a filesystem image or a partitioned filesystem image as a file-backed VBD.

Finally, standard network storage protocols such as NBD, iSCSI, NFS, etc., can be used to provide storage to virtual machines.
